Ravi Shankar Turns 91



Pop trends come and go. Virtuosity lives forever.

"If you practice for ten years, you may begin to please yourself, after 20 years you may become a performer and please the audience, after 30 years you may please even your guru, but you must practice for many more years before you finally become a true artist—then you may please even God." --Ali Akbar Khan, 1922-2009

Re: Ravi Shankar Turns 91

Didn't know about him before but his name is very similar (at least in English) to Adi Shankara?

Okay. He's father of Norah Jones and Anoushka Shankar, both Grammy winners.

Re: Ravi Shankar Turns 91

Happy Birthday, Ravi.

I've wanted a Sitar since first seeing him play one. Maybe some day.

Re: Ravi Shankar Turns 91

Ravi was famous a few decades ago for his collaboration with the Beatles in their later years, and then with ex-Beatle George Harrison afterwards. I believe he introduced them to the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, though it might have been the other way around. And he was involved with Harrison doing rock's first really big fundraising event (years B4 Live Aid) the 1971 Concert for Bangladesh, after a typhoon devastated the months nation that had been East Pakistan.
